Hey thunder, I got your PMs but I don't have enough posts yet to unlock full PM and reply! So I'll reply here!

I'm mostly local to the Five Towns, never been up to Port Jeff so I don't think it was me you saw

But, about a year ago about once a week I'd see another firemist slk in my town but I never got a chance to say hey to the guy because we were always going in opposite directions. I haven't seen that car in a while, maybe it was him!

And firemist is CLEARLY the hottest color on the car

Hi, I'm from Wantagh

Hello,
I'm south shore with a red 98 slk230 that I love. I came to this section looking for a club close to home or people who might live around here. Good luck with yours!

Hi, I'm from Brooklyn, wanna buy SLK R171, I had the same car in another country, full loaded, but only 1.8 engine.

It's very hard to find a car in good condition. Maybe, somebody can help me with advice ?

Thank you.

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

First please update your vehicle (PUT LOOKING!)(year?: 1996-2016, model?: 32, 200, 230, 250, 280, 300,320,350,55) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t. This takes about 30 seconds to do.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’. Info in your garage does not update your profile.

Your 1st thread should be your introduction so we can welcome you properly so post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already. New Members Introduce Yourself Here - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum


Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM. You can always pm a moderator.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
FREE!! Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.
Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

Thank you

SLKs are not common in the NY area and many of them have been degraded by getting bumped parking in the city, road salt, etc.

If I was going to buy another used R171, I would fly to a dry, sunny area (Arizona, Southern California, etc.), pick one out and drive it back.

It adds to the expense and it's a hassle, but you are much more likely to find a car in good condition in a configuration that you like.

Old thread, but here goes, I also live on Long Island on the South Shore. Bellport, Patchogue area.
There does not seem to be much of an SLK following from what I've seen.
Do you know of any clubs, meet ups, or outings during the summertime.
I only use my 2014 SLK250 11K miles, during the Summer. Actually just bought it in November '16
I use my Jeep Wrangler Sahara 2dr, when not using the SLK in the Summer.

When I had a MINI Cooper there were huge amount of coffee meetups and followings, drives, etc,
but not much for our uniquely luxuriously fun SLK.
A bit disappointing.

Hi Steven:

As I am sure you know very well, this is winter season around here and many have their RWD cars stored away so not much time to post or chat about a car that is not been driven. Bcos I just bought mine, I am trying to do a few mods that's why I am around this forum. Looking back at the NE Region, it appears there isn't much interest nor enthusiasm for a meet over the past few years. Most attempts have died without much luck... Makes me miss my San Diego, CA years when a meet-up can happen anytime, including mini-meets of a few friends/buddies...

Sad, really... bcos meet-ups are often great ways of building new friendships/buddies.... hanging around people of similar interests...

I've got one

Hello! YES!!! I'm from Wantagh and I've been waiting for someone else in the vicinity who owns an SLK to show up. Mine's a '98 and it's my daily driver (still). The reason I drive it daily is because I just LOVE it! Good luck and who knows may be I'll see you one of these days.
